If you do the beach ride, you get to SWIM with the horses. Yes, actually swim (unlike other places where you go leg deep)! You hold onto your horses mane, fighting with the waves, until the guide says, "Tail-ride!" Then you let go of the mane, back-up until you're off the horse, and grab onto its tail. The horse is...

We booked a private swim with the horses in September 2014. The reviews were great for Half Moon and it also was the only place that seemed to allow you to actually swim with the horses. So we went and were not disappointed. Trina was fabulous at emailing us right away and answering all our questions and very warm and... More

Well organized, clean barn. You can see the beach and dolphin park in the Half Moon. One of the best day ride stables I have seen.

I booked the beach ride and the friendly owner of the stables, Trina, came pick me up in person at my hotel in Montego Bay. I chose the stables at Half Moon based on the good reviews here and was also warned not to book any beach rides through the company "Chukka", it is cheaper but the horses wouldn't be... More

Even if you are not a horse rider the beach ride should be experienced. To swim with a horse is an incredible experience. We've done it twice and could do it again and again. The horses are lovely. Well looked after and the staff, particularly Mark and Sheldon are great.

Our daughter had a beach ride a year ago, and this time a polo lesson from the owner, whose instructions were clear and precise. The time was well spent.

Firstly the whole equestrian center is just so peaceful and the horses are so well kept, lovely and happy. We went swimming in the ocean on these horses which is the only place i've seen so far in the world where you can do that. The guys that take care of the horses work really hard and are very dedicated.... More

This is a must. I have been fortunate to do A LOT of excursions on my vacations and this is in my top 3. You ride through an AMAZING luxury resort, down the beach and then to the water with your horses. For $100 pp, you get transportation to the stable, friendly service and wonderful horses. Dwayne and Mark were... More

My sons 8 and 10 loved it. It was amazing to watch them going into the beach on the horse, they were so far out I felt a little nervous but they were fine and thrilled when they returned. My boys don't have riding experience and they were fine. At the end the trainer allowed the boys to take extra... More
